    "I love Chewy. It's hands down the best online pet store, bar none, because the people who work there are actual pet-lovers. I've been buying cat food from them for almost 2 years and they've never messed up my order (unlike Petco). And they always make quick deliveries. Now I'm going to tell a story: I used to own a tabby named Chester who sadly passed away recently. He had medications that were good for a month and I called Chewy and asked if I could return them and if they could charge my credit card the following month instead. They DIDN't charge me and what's more, the next day I received a bouquet of roses from them! I was gobsmacked. I wrote a lengthy email thanking them for their kindness and amazing empathy. They're real people who truly love what they do. ♥️"

    "I used to be a Dr. Foster and Smith customer but my account got transferred to Petco after they've acquired them. I own two bichon frises named Nutmeg and Coco and they're already in the latter years of their life. They're under medication and the transition to Petco had been pretty smooth. Whenever I receive their meds and dogfood supply they always come with treats samples. Sometimes I'd walk them past the nearby Petco store and the staff is always lovely and cordial. "

    "PetSmart offers a lot of excellent doggie products on their website and their deliveries are always on time. The site is easy to navigate and I appreciate the large number of choices that they have. Their products may be a bit overpriced but the quality is always great. 🐶"

    "Petflow has a lot of choices for dog food and it's really convenient that they have Autoship. I don't need to place orders every month. Once I received a couple of damaged cans and they immediately shipped the replacements. Great customer service!"

    "I ordered a single bag of dog food. It got backordered! I called customer service and they couldn't even be upfront as to why I was experiencing the inconvenience. Such a terrible experience. "

    "I ordered a harness for my dog who has a joint problem in the hip area. The first one that I received was too small so I had to ship it back, which I paid for myself. They received it but it took 10 days for my debit card to get the reimbursement. Naturally, I didn't order from them again and tried Chewy. I got the correct harness and shipping was quick. Bye 1800PetSupplies !"

    "Affordable and fast service. I bought flea medications for my cats and dogs from BudgetPetCare and they arrived the day after I placed my order. I also order their food supply through Autoship monthly and they always arrive on time. Plus everything is at really affordable prices. The best pet supply website I've shopped on! "
